In this activity children investigate the effects of gravity and create a series of force diagrams to explain what it would be like in zero gravity.
In this activity children investigate the movement of waves and use a chart to explain how to predict when a tsunami may hit.
This project, presented at the ASE Scotland Annual Conference in March 2017, was part of a wider project funded by the Royal Society Partnership Gr
Weak dispersion forces?
Forces, motion, electricity, atomic physics and wave effects can be illustrated using outdoor student activities.
Gravity is an intangible abstract force when considered theoretically and yet we are affected by it constantly.
